About Kenny's Wood Fired Grill

Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill is reminiscent of a 1940’s Chicago style chophouse with a classy, relaxed and warm atmosphere featuring the finest wood grilled seafood and meats. Our well rounded menu represents the traditional American classics with an emphasis on Kenny’s specialty, New England style seafood. And, while you are waiting for your table in the dining room you can enjoy the energetic “goose bar” sipping on a Grey Goose™ martini poured from our signature frozen tap system or a great glass of wine.

Kenny's never fails to please everyone. Service is friendly and efficient. They will make any accommodations you might ask for. The food is so good.

I booked a table for 6 on Open Table. When we got there we were told there was a "system glitch" and they didn't have a table for us. So in lieu of the table they set us at a bar overlooking the kitchen. They paid for appetizers to "make it right". It was a business lunch and this was not acceptable. We couldn't visit because we were all in one line instead of at a table. I won't be taking any other business functions nor otherwise there again.

We were seated at the long booth at the back, next to a party of 12 or 14 screaming twenty-something women who were exchanging Christmas gifts. Their loud, rude screeching totally ruined our occasion. We couldn't even hear each other across the table. Awful.

Kenney’s is always outstanding. We are repeat customers and have gone there for years. Crab cakes are the best in DFW

Great atmosphere, unbelievable service, and awesome food.

Started with signature drinks that were perfect.

Wood fired oysters were the best ever.

And all entrees had exquisite flavors.

Definitely will be returning.

Always love Kenny's. Whether it's a work lunch, date night, a special occasion, or just because. Kenny's delivers great cuisine at a great value and has an amazingly well stocked bar and wine list to accommodate any tastes. I cannot recommend them enough!

Great choice. Consistently great service and food. This is a constant in our world. Only downside is that it is loud. If you have people with hearing issues, they may be challenged. We don’t normally by did this time. Nonetheless, we love Kenny’s and will be back soon.

This was our first visit to Kenny's Wood Fired Grill and it delivered to and above our expectations. We had 7:30 reservations and although we arrived about 15 minutes early they were able to seat us right away despite it being a busy evening.

We were seated in a back corner booth and our server John was very attentive and helpful in recommending both drinks and dishes. He kept a close eye on our table and we were well taken care of the whole time.

The Lobster Mac n Cheese was unique and amazing. Three of us shared it as appetizer and then mopped up the rest of the sauce with our brioche rolls.

The Pork Chop was absolutely amazing and definitely the best pork any of us three had ever eaten anywhere. It was perfectly brined/cured with balanced herbal notes and a nice crisp seared crust and literally melted in our mouths!

My wife had the special of surf and turf of an 8oz filet topped with seared scallops. The scallops were large and seared very nicely and lightly seasoned so the taste of the actual scallops really shined. The filet was cooked a perfect medium rare with a nice crust and just the right amount of smoke flavor from the wood fire.

I had the 16oz Ribeye but asked that it be prepared by topping it with Sauteed Onions and Mushrooms , White Cheddar Cheese, and Bacon (like the normally do for the Strip Steak) Again, a perfect medium rare with a nice flavorful crust from the fire mingled well with the flavors from the toppings and was another crowd pleaser.

Unfortunately we enjoyed our dinner so much that we didn't save any room for desert so that will have to be for a future visit.

In summary, Kenny's exceeded all our expectations and what really stood out was the quality, flavor, and presentation of the food (my top priorities) which was complemented by excellent service in a fun (albeit a bit noisy) upscale-casual food focused environment that is open late and perfect for special occasions or date night.

We highly recommend trying Kenny's!

Richard was awesome as our server. We tried a special and the steak was great but lobster meat was cold. It was Monday, restaurant was crazy busy. We will just stay with our usual casual food order.

Food was great, as always. Entrees were hot but sides were on the cool side. Our waiter promptly took them away and brought fresh, hot sides. I know this was an unusual event based on previous experience but the wait staff quickly made it right so I only mention as why I didn't give the food a 5 star rating.

We ate at Kenny’s with family over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We were in town visiting our daughters. Atmosphere, food and service were all amazing. We each had something different and everyone loved their dinner. Kyle was our waiter, he did a great job explaining the items on the menu and the nightly specials. He kept us full on drinks, and checked on us regularly. We’ll be back!
